    Very good and very easy. Instead of half-and-half I used some milk thickened with flour and it came it great. Good quick and easy dinner!

    This recipe is so easy and really delicious. I love pasta carbonara but the raw eggs in the sauce always worry me. This recipe is egg free and tastes great!

    I just bade this last night! I added some mushrooms, garlic and a splash of cooking wine. Very good.

    How can something so simple be so good? It's a perfect weekday meal. The kids even ate the peas! I did use pancetta instead of bacon, because I had it. But I sent this recipe to all my friends. It's a keeper!

    This was incredible. My kids inhaled it! I have never cared for dry angel hair pasta, but the fresh angel hair pasta was excellent. I wouldn't change a thing about this recipe. It was so quick and easy!

    This was definitely easy to make, and delicious. The next time I make it, I am going to use a half a box to three-quarters of a box of pasta, and break them in half before cooking. I felt there was too much pasta, which made it seem dry. Also, when the pasta was long, it was hard to mix. Also, I might add more bacon. I will definitely make it again. My two small kids (ages 1
